Tawny Grassbird ?

Megalurus timoriensis.

I think this is a Tawny Grassbird. Not 100% sure on that, but it seems to match the book.

Spotted on Hills Rd, Cedar Creek.

    Does look like it, is the breast light coloured?

    Seemed to be. Little bugger didn't turn right around to face me, but the glimpses I got suggested it was a light coloured breast.

    WOW!! That lens produces crystal clear stuff David!! Nice detail mate.
  • David de Groot said:
    Aye, that it does ;-) This is cropped a bit (about 50%) as I couldn't physically get any closer while still in the car.

    Thanks Rae :) Yeah, I was quite happy with this one. Nice isolation, but some environment too.
